In the end it is caveat emptor. Read and understand your end user agreement with your ISP.

Read my first post. No notice. Just the unilateral decision to block all e-mail from anywhere not in the USA. That includes ".tv" (Tavalu?) which is popular in the Southern California area.


I spent 2 hours on the phone with Verizon in the last 24 hours.
I was told that for "security reasons", Verizon IS blocking ALL out of the US emails. They, also, admit that "verification", "bounce back", and "automated response" emails are not getting through.
I can NOT update my MS "passport". I can NOT get support from KAV. I can NOT get "reply notifications" from any forum, including this one.
Their support tech got on my PC any verified all my setting are correct and admits it's a Verizon problem.

Their solution:
Every time I DON'T receive an email, I should call Verizon and they will manually add these URLs to only MY emails allow list. It will take approximately 2 weeks for the changes to take place.
Is this for real?
